As we pulled into the parking lot across the street and took a look at the Farmer Guest House, both my wife and I had a great feeling about our decision to stay here, and we couldn't have been more right. I turned the historic door handle and opened the door to be greeted by a huge smile and welcome...

I want to be absolutely sure that every guest has a great breakfast regardless of any food restrictions or preferences - gluten free, celiac, lactose sensitivity, allergy, vegan, vegetarian, pescetarian, or just plain don't...

I've never written a review for an inn before, but FGH deserves my attention. My wife and I had a wonderful stay at this very pleasant and quaint B&B. The owners, Sue and Don, are as gracious as anyone can be. The breakfasts -- plated, not buffet -- are gourmet. Sue is a fantastic cook. 5PM is wine and cheese...

My husband and I came to Farmer's for our first time based on so many great online reviews. We were celebrating our 5 Year Anniversary and had never been to Galena. We enjoyed the kind owners, yummy breakfast, bottomless coffee and cookies, and quick access to the amazing downtown. Care was taken to ensure that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay....

We just returned home after spending a wonderful three days at Farmers' Guest House.

Don and Sue have perfected the B&B experience. I would recommend every B&B owner stay a night at Farmers' Guest House and see professionalism with the personal touch at its finest.

This is a great place to stay. It is very clean and well-managed. Wish I was as good in the kitchen as Susan. Her breakfast was delicious! At about 5 o’clock Don and Susan (Innkeepers) host Wine Time. That was a real plus. We met here with two other couples so this was a good time to catch up on...

We stayed in the Charlotte suite which felt just like home. Very comfortable and convenient. Susan, Don and Charles take great care of their guests and made us feel very welcome. A very beautiful inn, with a great breakfast each morning, nice patio in the back for a glass of wine under the stars. We highly recommend Farmers' Guest House!...
